Back to the Pacific

In the morning we started with some fog and very light drizzle southward to cross the Columbia River. The first half of the river we crossed with a bridge. Afterwards we took a small ferry from the island in the middle of the river to Westport, Oregon.

From Westport we biked on the well-traveled Highway 30 towards the Pacific Ocean to Astoria. Because of the rather cool weather and the traffic, we covered the 50 kilometers almost without a break.

In Astoria we made a rest day and stayed overnight in a hostel. So we had once again the opportunity to work on the blog articles and visit the Maritime Museum.

During a very good dinner at the Fort George Brewery we learned from the cyclists from Wisconsin the dice game "Farkle".

Since Astoria is again a somewhat larger place, we could profit here also once again from a bio store. Such stores offer a more exciting food selection compared to regular supermarkets, as more specialty and local cheeses and charcuterie are available here.
